The Radical Book for Kids is a fun-filled explorer’s guide to the Bible, church history, and life for boys and girls age 8 and up. Along with examining some of the most exciting realities in the universe, the handbook is vibrantly illustrated and chock-full of fun facts and ideas. Deep truths are communicated to elementary and middle-school aged kids while stimulating their curiosity and sense of adventure within a gospel-centered framework.
This power-packed book is “radical” in more ways than you might think! It is “radical” in the sense of the original meaning of the word, “going to the root or origin.” The Radical Book for Kids will take children on a fascinating journey into the ancient roots of the Christian faith. But it’s also “radical” in the more modern sense of being revolutionary. Kids read about men and women who learned to trust Jesus and stand for him—displaying radical faith—even when everything seemed against them.
But The Radical Book for Kids is also “radical”—meaning fun or cool—in the eyes of a child. Kids read about ancient weapons (and how to make one), learn about jewels, create pottery, discover ancient languages, use secret codes, locate stars, tell time using the sun, play a board game that’s 3,000 years old—and more.
Check out the table of contents, skip around, or read straight through. However a child chooses to explore it, The Radical Book for Kids will open new vistas for their imagination and help to make straight paths for their feet.
After reading through "The Radical Book for Kids", I have found that this book is different than any other children's book that I have read. I have three children(13, 7, & 5). This book goes deep into the context of the Bible & is an amazing book that helps you understand your life and the life of those the Bible was written for.
This book would be great in a church library. I wouldn't say this book is Just a children's book,it is a great resource for any age.
The chapters aren't very long, each one is about 2-5 pages. You will learn something in the pages of this book, whether you have only 5 minutes or the whole afternoon!
I recommend this book to anyone who is looking to further their child's(or their own) knowledge of the Bible. It would make a great gift!
